Quant fund investment and financial near 1 trillion under management

Quant fund investment and financial near 1 trillion under management

Understand how quant funds are changing how we see the future of investing and taking financial advise.

Here are some highlighted comments about this article from Financial Times:

 

They speak of how algos make the markets complex and fragile

More unsophisticated (dumb money or even retail money) flows into electric traded funds without understanding underlying investment nor know the high risk. These are put into mainstream ETF funds like Vanguard or Blackrock. Could this be the next 2008 waiting to blow up?

Examples of Two Sigma is used to show short time to get to 50 billion asset under management like Renaissance Technology or DE Shaw.

One French was quoted as doubling their staff within 5 years while other old investment banks are shedding traditional trading roles. Remember how Goldman Sachs is considered now a technology company vs an investment bank with 30+% of staff as software engineers.

Cohen backed Quantopian starts fund for external investors

This could be pure genius if Mr. Stephen Cohen would decide to use Quantopian as a front to help fund his operation with external capital. Apparent his new Point 72 is not growing as fast as he would like so Quantopian could be a fantastic proxy for his investments. I could be wrong as well.

 

Here is that article I speak of

 

As I slightly hinted in an email and posting, I’ll be going through an exhaustive testing phase to validate my theories of volatility in currency trading. I’m hoping to reveal some positive relationships and patterns that may be helpful to my supportive Quant Analytics members. In fact I may do an unconventional Live meet up webinar for them next week sometime. It will be very last minute to focus on these theories and results. Be aware of this coming up. Once again I’ll only be available for my Quant Analytics members only.

 

Yesterday I revealed some of my daily analysis for my Quant Analytics Lite service here’s the latest headline from today.

NZ dollar hit after party agreement and China develerages to expand GDP

Rise of the DIY quant fund

Rise of the DIY quant fund

There is lots of mention of services like Quantopian and Numerai. If you ask me, Numerai show most potential of them but always remember, you want to always own your source control for ultimate control. A compelling quote:

“The time will come when no human investment manager will be able to beat the computer,” David Siegel, the co-founder of quantitative fund Two Sigma, which manages $35 billion, told an investment conference in 2015.
